A must do in Guatapé, the view is amazing! The stairs are a bit rough, but everyone will manage with some breaks along the way.

I am terrified of heights. Piedra Pinol has 800 steps going up the side. Almost chickened out 1/4 way up but got myself together and made it to the top. Breath taking view with restaurant and bathrooms at the top. If I can go up...More
